I am Creighton King. I love this aircraft as it brings a visceral experience to avation!
As I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah (USA), my father built airplanes in our garage. In my youth, I would ride my bike to the airport to wash airplanes in exchange for rides. I spent my days reading airplane magazines and dreaming of the airplanes that I would someday build.
I finished my dads homebuilt Piper Cub at age 18. I built a Kitfox at age 19. Later, I restored a Tripacer and modified the Cub with big tires, big power, and a big prop. I have had several Cassutt projects including a Lycoming powered version and my own Reno Air Racer - Last Lap Player.
Last Lap Player was orginally a traditional Cassutt 111M with a 17 foot wing and an 0-200. My Cassutt has been a blast and I describe flying it like a first kiss in grade school. I am continuing on the Cassutt line to keep this great Sport Racer progressing.
The Cassutt factory is a humble operation with progressive ideas to build aircraft better and faster. I am excited to work wtih you to build this dream for you!
